Author Alex Wagner appears in conversation with Ta-Nehisi Coates on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 7:00 PM about her new memoir FUTUREFACE.
The daughter of a Burmese mother and a white American father, journalist Alex Wagner (CBS News, The Atlantic) grew up thinking of herself as a “Futureface” — a proud part of our world’s mixed-race future.
But her post-racial ideals grew more complicated when a family mystery led her into an epic global journey to understand the truth of her ancestry. Join Wagner, author of the gripping new book Futureface, and National Book Award winner Ta-Nehisi Coates (Between the World and Me) for a profound conversation on the American experience of race, immigration, exile and identity. Who do we believe ourselves to be — and who are we really?
A book signing follows the event.
